as talked about last week on the Printing Summit we have replaced the 
user mailing lists of linuxprinting.org by the FSG OpenPrinting User 
Forums [1] which are web forums based on the Phorum [2] web forum system.

This way we make it much easier and more attractive for our users to ask 
questions and discuss problems of printing with Posix-style operating 
systems. Also the search of already existing discussions will be 
simplified a lot by this platform. And due to the spam impact being much 
lower on web forums than on e-mail, administration of the system will 
also get easier.

But note that the implementation of the forum system is not yet 
completed. We plan to have a single sign-on for Wiki, forums, and 
Bazaar. Until the forums are full integrated for that, you will have to 
register at first in the Wiki [3] and then in the forums [4] using the 
same user name and password. If you are subscribed in one or of the 
mailing lists, please use the same e-mail address for the forum 
registration, so that we can later on assign your old mailing list 
postings to you.

The user mailing lists will be deactivated (only "printing-user-..." 
lists) soon, but the archives will be kept active until they are 
converted to forum postings. So you will still be able to browse the 
olde list postings. Got to the list info page from [5] and then click 
the archives link to get to the list archives.

Please do not post to the mailing lists any more.
